The Crescent Post Office was established on May 27, 1892, in the W. H. Hargadine home amidst a thriving community known as the Bethel/Crescent community. It already had a school and a church. The post office was discontinued on September 14, 1905.
The names of Bethel and Crescent were both used to call this community located in the west central section of the county.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
